I always thought it was odd how Acajack kept posting even though he's been dead since 1982.

Me too. I'm vastly more interesting on-line than in real life anyway!

I've met many forumers back in my active SSC/UT days. Now not so much. I'd rather keep my business private.

A poster here has met me.

I thought for sure that Molson was Hans Gruber. I guess I was wrong.

Met many Edmonton peeps, some YYC and a few others here and there, most notably Giallo in Shanghai.

People have figured out who I am, not hard, for good or bad.

Well, there are lots of Monctonians who post in the Moncton section (about 20 regularly, probably twice that casually), but you and I are the only ones who regularly venture into the Canada section.

I know the names of several SSP members. I have left enough clues out there that people could figure out who I am. As a matter of fact, one of my colleagues at work guessed my identity from reading some of my SSP posts just a couple of months ago.

Don't say Ayreonaut and secret in the same sentence, you're going to get SHH all excited

In person I've met SHH, Jeddy1989, Ayreonaut, and Copes. I have vid on facebook, and 1ajs is in our group chat, though I haven't apparently added him to facebook (oops).

I haven't hunted anyone down online based on them being here or dropping hints about their identity. Likewise, if anyone ever takes the time to try and find me (I'm sure you won't ) you'll find I live a pretty boring life.

Just Ayreonaut is enough.

I used to try to keep my real identity separate from my online one, but I threw the towel in once things like Facebook, Flickr and Instagram became a major part of my online life/career. I'm out there. Everything I post here has my real name at the bottom, for instance.

I've met a few SSPers in real life. Usually, they'll contact me if they're coming to Shanghai, and I do my best to meet up with them. Coldrsx was one of the more recent ones. We had a few too many.

Wow, it's just that sometimes keeping one's job is more important than losing it, but less important than the ability to express an opinion. A comment regarding CBC's new requirement that people only use real names stated that the only comments from now on would be from retired people.

I'm not an asshole in real life everyone I swear.

I've met maybe three folks from SSP but i'm pretty anti-social in general.

No, you're fun. I forgot I also have Boris on FB, though we've not met.

Don't try to hide. We all know your real name is Gary Bettman!

NHL's announcement on only expanding to LV in a couple of weeks is going to cause such a massive shitstorm in Canada that i'm just going to hide under a rock for a month.

I am almost certainly the cause of a support group among straight men somewhere.
